These days, there are so many Treasures from Trash around the building that I can’t keep track on a daily basis.
I’ve taken to going to the laundry room every night to check out the scene. I have probably been more times to the laundry room in the past 3 weeks than in the three years I lived here previously (on that note, I give great thanks for the existence of Wash ‘n Folds)!
Here was the score from last Saturday:
A 2 1/2’x 1′ picture frame (with broken glass removed). Very light, and thus perfect for a future objet d’art based on The Scream
When working at the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal as Duty Counsel, I always had half a mind to put a print of this up on my cubicle wall (to echo the sense of landlords and tenants’ caterwauling at each other). Now that I may be heading back there in a while, I may make this dream a reality.
Pickings have been slim this week in the laundry room. I suspect I shall have to wait until the end of the month again when it’s moving time.
Another recycled treasure I’m working on at present…
Stay tuned! I should be finished it later today.
I also finally located my bag of leather scraps, so with any luck I’ll get around to putting some patches on my new Gap suedelike jacket (laundry room score).
But first, I must do some of that dreaded task called HOUSEWORK.
And, on this grey Remembrance Day, I will also be giving some thought to the sacrifices of those who died in wars fighting on behalf of Canada, and all of the other victims of wars – and wishing for peace.
